• Chocolate Cherry Angel Food Cake

    CHOCOLATE CHERRY ANGEL FOOD CAKEThis is probably not going to be your favorite cake (unless you have the time to make your homemade angel food cake!) It does, however, make a great dessert in a pinch when you just don’t have time to spend a long while in the kitchen. Although we made it today with cherries, my personal favorite is strawberries.

    Our Chocolate Cherry Angel Food Cake comes to you  straight out of the recipes of my dear friend, the late Pam Niblett. I make it when I don’t have time to make a cake and can just start with a bought angel food!!


    1 Angel Food Cake
    2 T. Butter
    1 oz. (1 Square) Semisweet Chocolate
    1 T Corn Syrup
    1 C. Confectioner’s Sugar
    Maraschino Cherries*
    Juice From the Cherries
    Fresh Mint for Garnish


    1. Whether using a homemade, cake mix, or bought Angel Food Cake, cool cake completely.

    2. Combine the butter, chocolate, and syrup and cook over low heat, stirring often until chocolate is completely melted.

    3. Stir in sugar and juice until you have your preferred consistency.

    4. Drizzle over caked and then garnish with the cherries and mint.

    *Feel free to substitute with strawberries or your favorite fruit.
